Incredible Infants and Terrific Toddlers

Infants and toddlers learn best by touching, smelling, seeing, and tasting the things they find in their environment. They are explorers for new experiences because the world is new to them. Teachers will learn to offer opportunities for infants and toddlers to explore and learn from their surroundings by doing things with them like singing and clapping, "reading" stories and looking at pictures, and exploring the properties of materials they come in contact with daily. In this training participants will learn how to involve children in new experiences that directly support their emerging awareness of others, emergent language, motor skills, and social/emotional development. As we go through the training, teachers will make activities to take back to their centers and use them immediately. CEUs are available for this training.

Stack It Up with Blocks

The Block Center may be the single most useful center in the early-childhood classroom. Learn how to plan exciting play experiences in your block center. Engage young children to develop new concepts when building with blocks. Block play allows children of all ages to develop math, language, science and social skills while using their imaginations and boosting their creativity. We will look at the developmental stages of block play so we can observe what needs to be available for the children to enhance that stage and encourage them to move to the next stage. Join us as we identify ways to enhance block play by using accessories that increase appropriate developmental learning. CEUs will be offered with this training.
